UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 12 oz. Bottle, Apr 16, 2006 This is quite clearly labeled as being produced at the Berkeley brewery. Sold at Wild Oats in a six pack with a cylindrical pilsner/alt glass attached. Pours pale straw with a rocky, lacy head on top. Big German hop smell at opening stays with the pour. Lazy stream of bubbles rises through the glass. A nice German malt, with a very, very slight tart note. Kind of a grassy straw taste, finished of by straightforward noble hops bitterness. A solid interpretation of the style, and who’d a thought a place in Berkeley would have the discipline to make a pils to precise German engineering standards.<hr>Draft, Sept 18, 2005. Sampled in a solid plastic mug, so I couldn’t get a handle on its color. Have to presume it’s okay. Taste, though, is light and "crisp," like American pale macros claim, but this one really is. But beyond that, not much stands out in the way of hops, just the standard German bitterness against pale malts. Finished nice and dry. Again, an imported pilsner that’s probably much better closer to home.
Additional note, Aug 10, 2006. Finishing the sixer, I found that last bottle started to show more nice German hop bitterness. Crisper and cleaner. I think that’s worth bumpint the rating up a notch.

From a bottle. Pours a clear gold, thin white head, pleasant malty aroma, smooth like a good pilsner. I liked it more than I thought I would.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grain mostly on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty clean.

Trumer Pils finds itself in that not-so-selective category of "Not bad but hardly great." On the downside, the color’s a bit too light and the carbonation’s a bit too strong. The nose is weak and the flavor is hardly special though fairly enjoyable. On the upside, Trumer is fairly satisfying with its crisp hop character and smooth malts. While it’s far from being a special or memorable beer, this pils will do the trick when better options are absent.

An ok pils. Lots of straw, heavily carbonated, and exceedingly dry. Not much in the way of a defining flavor or aroma, however.

mintzmeet (183) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Mild honeysuckle notes on the early part. Standard lager bite and finish. A touch of sweetness on the tail end, but not overwhelming. Good for sessions.

Fra fat på k.u.k. Hofwirt i Bad Ischel 7 Mai 14. Veldig lys gylden. Lavt luftig skum med litt lacing. Forsiktig maltaroma. Smaken er tørr. Klart maltpreg med en undertone av humle. Litt søt.

worldbeertaste (1598) - AUSTRIA - MAY 17, 2014
medium to pale yellow with a frothy, lacy, diminishing head. Smells of grain, malt, vegetable and light hops. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Tastes of sweet malt, with cardboard and a strong hoppy bitterness finishes it all off. Whatever it’s a pils
